C# Lambda Laser Light Show

Intro talk 6-6:40pm, Mocking and Stubbing with Rhino Mocks:

Are you still not using Unit Tests in your everyday code?  If you are have you embraced the culture of Mocks and Stubs (what Martin Fowler calls 'Mockists')?  Without a doubt one of the hardest concepts to grasp for those new to TDD is the idea of Mocking and Stubbing.  In this fast-paced intro talk I'll go over the basics of mocking and stubbing, why you need to use them and how to use them with the RhinoMocks framework.


Primary talk 6:45-8:30pm, C# Lambda Laser Show:

Peter Seale will be giving his C# Lambda Laser Show, featuring pyrotechnics! By the end of the meeting, all attendees should have a strong grasp of how to use C# delegates and events, and should have a rough of idea of how to use Continuation Passing Style, build Event-Driven Architectures, and apply Design Patterns.

Notes from Peter:

"please tell your attendees to wear flame-retardant suits, at least on the first row"

"also, I will be smashing watermelons with a hammer, so please prepare accordingly"

    As I stated, Rhino Mocks complication is overblown, mainly do to the fact that the early versions had convoluted syntax, not so for the latest (but now old) version.

    Any primary talk that opens up with Quake II deserves a 4 regardless of the delivery or content. Hopefully you can show the rest of your material on another night in the coming monthly meetings.

    Hi everyone! Thanks to those that could make it, we had 30 show up this month, a few more than last month, both meetings larger than before we moved to meetup.com. I posted a completed solution for my Rhino Mocks Demonstration on my github account, you can view/pull the solution here and see the basic uses of Rhino Mocks that you will need to use the framework in a production environment:

    I've posted the demo. Most notably, I've posted the rough text file we edited inline:


    These are answers to someone's question:

    //#2 TypeMock Isolator works, Moles from Microsoft
    //Ayende.com's blog, "Architecture" tag
    //C# In Depth, 2nd edition
    //Reactive Extensions-Rx + async / await
